1 Answer

75

I have 15/250s I think and they barely rub on rare occassions. I still can't say for sure if that's because of the size or because of a rusted out core-support (that's being fixed right now actually). When it does rub its only when I'm hard-over on the wheel and hitting a significant bump and it's just a little bit. It's not significant enough to change my mind about the size wheels. The small ones don't look as good. My wheels are from a 1980 Oldsmobile Seventy Eight. I polished up the chrome pieces, blacked-out the oldsmobile emblem and painted the main part of the wheel black. They were FREE in a junk yard and they look HOT on my car. You could put smaller tires than I used. Check out my pics to see what I'm talking about. It's the blue car under 1978 Nova
